Here I and my double chin are, at Walden Pond. There were actually some crazy fishermen fishing on the ice.
This was Orchard House, home of Louisa May Alcott. I don't think either Charlene or I expected it to be such a cool visit. 80% of the home's furnishing are the Alcott's, and this family was way ahead of their time in ideas of education, women's rights, abolitionism, and many other cool things. I loved seeing May's (Amy's) drawings all over the walls, and Louisa's (Jo's) mood pillow she always kept on the couch.
The USS Constitution. Home to the famous ship, and some really good looking men in uniform.
We had some really wonderful dinners and I truly enjoyed myself. And I probably gained five pounds. All in my face.
Here I am SEWING!! Yes, non-believers, I CAN do something domestic! This was at the beginning of the cold I caught on the plane. And yes, that is a tissue in hanging from my nose. Classy, classy.
More proof of my crafty little self. Thanks to Charlene and her excellent tutelage, I am sewing some cool fabric onto a onesie for Jack.
The bag I made! I'm so proud!!
My awesome hosts, Charlene and Peter. Peter gave me a great idea to follow up on for my future history degree path...an archival librarian. Some of you might be snoring already just reading that sentence, but to me, it sounds fascinating.
My other awesome host and frequent bed partner, Finty. Here she is checking up on my sewing progress. She was a tough taskmaster. Do you miss me?
